The name of our choir in Amsterdam is of course a wink to my favorite musical movie – I must have watched it at least a dozen times. It keeps inspiring my love for singing.


We sing (mostly new) arrangements of key songs of classic musicals such as Hair, Sister Act, Fiddler on the Roof, and – as you can hear in the recording below – Mary Poppins. We performed this song – Sister Suffragette – at Café De Pianist, in June 2019.

Come for a tryout with The Merry Poppins

Season 2019/2020 starts first week of september

Performing in Nov. 2018, Café Belcampo, Amsterdam


We perform at least twice a year, including an end-of-the-year concert every June. One of our recent shows was at the church wedding of one of our members.

In november 2018 we performed in Café Belcampo, at a brunch concert with another choir: Hebrew Groove.  In June 2019, we performed at Café De Pianist in Amsterdam (see recording below).

Our bad-ass work ethic

We are an amateur choir but dedicated to making this a great vocal ensemble. You don’t have to have a lot of singing experience to join. As long as you are dedicated to learn and put in the effort. It’s hard work but a lot of fun! As Mary Poppins sang: ‘In every job that must be done / there is an element of fun / You find the fun / and SNAP the job’s a game’

The perks of being a Poppin

Why is being a Merry Poppin the best thing ever? Being a part of The Merry Poppins will give you:

  • Weekly rehearsals with a group of dedicated singers from all over the world. You learn about vocal technique and blending in a group.
  • Two concerts a year (at least)
  • One private singing lesson with a 65% discount (€20 instead of €60), which will improve you as a (choir) singer. On more lessons, you get a 10% discount.
  • New arrangements of classic musical songs that I wrote especially for this choir (such as in the video below: I recorded and dubbed my own voice for soprano, mezzo and alto)


Rehearsals are on Sundays, 14.30 – 16.30 h, at The Open Court, Fahrenheistraat 115, Amsterdam (Google maps).


The membership fee is for a whole season, for we will aim to get some results by the end concert. The payment will be 350 euros (including 21% VAT) for the season (September-end of June). It covers my fee as arranger/director/organiser and costs for promotion, social media promotion of concerts and member acquisition, fees for rehearsal and/or concert space.

NB: if you enter the year at a later stage, you get a discount that is proportionate.
